New NPT Reroute in the Works

The chapter has just been notified by the DEC that a reroute of the NPT below Plumley’s Point will be started over this summer. Most of it will be on the last private parcel and then some of the Forest Preserve.  The new route will avoid the beaver pond area. They will notify us once it is completed and signage has been put up. Check back for any updates.


  1. Do you have a map showing the proposed new route? I have a camp nearby and walk that stretch of the NPT frequently. Do you know if the reroute has been flagged? The flooded area just south of Plumley’s is a lovely spot, one of my favorites. Is that the place the new trail will avoid?

    No map available yet as soon as the DEC has one they will send it to me and we will post it. Yes that is the area were the reroute will take place!
